Today was a rough day.
I'm feeling the countdown of leaving my current job more than I expected to. I really want to go, I am excited about the opportunities and experiences that are out there for me, but I am going to miss the people and the work I do now.
If you've either been to my desk or seen pictures of my desk in the past you'll know that it is usually COVERED in stuff. I love magnets, toys, random crap, etc. My desk right now consists of my calendar and not much else.
Here's a selfie at my desk from today:

Also today, my great uncle Junior Mullins died. I was at work when I found out, only minutes after it happened, and it was a true shock for me. Junior had Down syndrome and never seemed like an "old man," he was just Junior. He lived a good life, made it all the way to age 68, which in my family is quite an accomplishment (as of this writing, my grandfather, Junior's brother, is the oldest living male on that side of the family at 86).
Here's a picture I took literally as I was walking in the door from work:
